Remember when you were young and you were tasked with the role of wagon leader and solely responsible for the fate of your fellow pioneers as you traversed the dangerous trail connecting Independence, Missouri to Oregon’s Willamette Valley? If you’re anything like me, you failed miserably at your duties, with settlers dying off faster than you could hunt and catch food. But very soon, you’ll be able to redeem yourself.

Yep, you guessed it, we’re talking about the legendary game, Oregon Trail. The Los Angeles Times technology blog is reporting that the nostalgic educational computer game is coming to the iPhone later this month.

Based on screen shots from the IGN website, we can assume the limited graphics and old school green and black color scheme are being traded in for a fresher, iPhone-ready, Oregon Trail experience.

We think this upcoming addition to the app store will do quite fine, especially given that popular nostalgic games like Monopoly, Tetris, and Scrabble are all currently top paid apps.

Oregon Trail reportedly hits the app store on February 28, and we’re anxiously awaiting its arrival. Are you as excited as we are? Let us know in the comments.
